Circumstances:
The crew was completing a ferry flight from Goose Bay to UK via Narsarsuaq and departed Goose Bay Airport at 0723LT. Bound to the northeast, the single engine airplane flew at an altitude varying between 600 and 700 metres and a speed of 200-240 km/h when it struck a mountain located about 74 km southeast of Makkovik, Newfoundland, about 37 minutes after takeoff. SAR operations were hampered due to blizzard and a ground search and rescue team consisting of nine people from Makkovik reached the two men by snowmobile on Wednesday evening. At the time, one was conscious while another was unconscious. They reached Makkovik around 2100LT, but couldn't get a helicopter out until early Thursday morning due to poor weather conditions. Both pilots were evacuated in the morning of May 2 but one of them died from his injuries later in the day.
